PRAISE FOR THE STARFIRE TRILOGY "Space battles! Bug ships! A galaxy in peril! This epic, awe-inspiring blend of the fantastic is everything great space opera should be. Chewy, gooey, thought-provoking and above all -- a great deal of fun." --Kameron Hurley "Gritty. It usually means rough and tumble. Spencer Ellsworth has done that, but here, the word gritty also means tangible. Starfire feels real. Jaqi feels real, and man, is she full of grit." --Mary Robinette Kowal "Cozy, classic space opera is twisted in innovative, awesome ways in Ellsworth's debut A Red Peace. Humankind is the nasty invasive alien in space that's about to get its comeuppance, and wow, do the pages zoom by. I impatiently await the next book!"--Beth Cato "The high adventure and scale of a classic space opera, but with a set of diverse characters with varied motivations and greater nuance." --RT Book Reviews
